On Sunday, wildlife officials spotted and captured an alligator a few miles east off Mansfield in an area of U.S. Highway 84.
So what should you do if you spot one of these large lizards?
According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries:
If the alligator is not posing a threat, then it is suggested to wait a few days, if possible even up to a week, before contacting LDWF.
